I lead the Machine Programming Research group at Intel Labs.
I'm also the principal investigator and co-founder of the joint Intel/NSF CAPA research center. In academia, I have appointments as the executive director of AI research and development for the PRECISE Center for Safe AI at the University of Pennsylvania and as the chair of the PRECISE industrial advisory board. I am also an adjunct professor at the University of Colorado-Boulder and recently co-taught at the University of Pennsylvania on anomaly detection for safe autonomy.
Overall, I perform research in artificial intelligence with a focus on machine programming, anomaly detection, deep learning, and autonomous systems. I try to build and maintain deep academic and industrial ties. I'm wildly interested in machine programming. In 2016, I co-founded the machine learning and programming languages (MAPL) workshop and was its program and general chair in 2017 and 2018, respectively. In 2019, I accepted the invitation as the chair of the MAPL steering committee. In 2019, I founded and accepted the role as the Head of the Machine Programming Research group @ Intel Labs.
I was previously the director of engineering at Machine Zone, where I oversaw the engineering of Game of War and Mobile Strike. When not doing research, I work on my online gaming software company, Nodeka, LLC, which I founded in 1999.
My (somewhat dated) CV is here. I have over 60 peer reviewed publications and issued patents with around 100 patents pending. I've given several dozen invited research presentations at places like Berkeley, BMW, IBM Research, Penn, Stanford, VMWare, UCLA, and UW.
